Connect to Azure SQL Database

Hello all,


Has anyone tried connecting an on-premise Board instance to a SQL database in Azure? Can't seem to find any available connectors for it.







  • Hi,

    Where are you looking for connectors exactly ? Could you provide a screenshot of where you are looking ?

    From my experience, i didn't succeeded using a windows ODBC connector set on the BOARD server, so I used the connection string available in MS Azure directly:



    Unfortunately, BOARD doesn't allow to select and copy the connection string within the data reader connection parameters window.

    The string I have is:

    Driver={ODBC Driver 13 for SQL Server};,1433;Database=MyDatabase;Uid=MySQLuser@MyDatabase;Pwd=MyPassword;Encrypt=yes;TrustServerCertificate=no;Connection Timeout=30;


    You should find this string available in your Microsoft Azure SQL Database interface, which looks like this in my case:



    I hope this helps.
